"caught in the vortex of desires,/those fires within/that consumed the dross of dawn"
|Like water for chocolate,
the stars winked out that night,
the energies of the universe
caught in the vortex of desires,
those fires within
that consumed the dross of dawn
and the set of suns
brought all to a zenith
bright as fission,
far reaching visions of what I dreamed
before I met you.
From afar I'd seen the smoke
wondering where was the fire,
Lord, where was the flame of my desire?
For where there were embers,
there hid my hope.
